Palmer your Player of the Year!

25 April 2014

Sheffield Wednesday supporters were asked to vote for their Player of the Year via the official website and Liam Palmer has come out on top.

This becomes the third end of season award Palmer has scooped after being crowned the Wise Old Owls Player of the Year and sharing the same title from SODA with Chris Kirkland.

The utility man has enjoyed a hugely productive campaign following a successful loan spell with Tranmere through the entire 2012/13 season.

Indeed, since his return to S6, Palmer has well and truly grabbed his first team opportunity with both hands, rarely missing a game this campaign.  

Equally as comfortable at right back or in midfield, Palmer has become a shining example to the younger age groups in the academy as to what can be achieved at Hillsborough.

Fans voted in their thousands in the online poll, and over 30 per cent opted for Palmer as their Player of the Year.

Midfielder Kieran Lee finished as runner-up with over 20 per cent and it was a close battle for third place between Chris Kirkland and Chris Maguire, both of whom received 13 per cent.

Prior to Saturday’s Championship clash against Bolton, Palmer will be presented with his trophy on the pitch.

Thank you to all supporters who took the time to vote for their Player of the Year and congratulations Liam!
